Voters in Florida, 3 other states head to polls


MIAMI (AP) — Voters in four states are headed to the polls for primaries and runoffs.

Florida Democrats must decide Tuesday whether to give former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist a chance to reclaim his old job after switching parties.

The question is whether Crist can run up a large margin against a little-known opponent who once led Democrats in the state Senate.

Crist's Republican successor, Gov. Rick Scott, is expected to coast to his party's nomination for a second term.

In Arizona, a crowded field of Republicans wants to succeed GOP Gov. Jan Brewer.

Republicans in Vermont will decide whom to nominate against Democratic Gov. Peter Shumlin, who serves as chairman of his party's national governors association.

Oklahoma Democrats must choose their Senate nominee in a runoff.
